stART – Summer 2013 | The Student Pocket Guide

The Summer 2013 edition of The Student Pocket Guide saw the return of stART, our showcase of student art from across the UK! Yet again, we received heaps of amazing artwork from very talented students from around the country, and we were very impressed with every piece we received…

While unfortunately we weren’t able to feature all of your brilliant work, we did pick out a few of our favorite pieces for this edition of stART, which we felt showed off a variety of great artistic talent.

To be in with a chance of having your artwork featured in the next edition of stART, please send your work along with your name, institute, a description and contact details to:

stART: View by Larry Poulton

View by Larry Poulton

Artist: Larry Poulton
Institute: University of East London
Description: This piece, entitled “View From my Bedroom Window”, is based on the theme of experience vs. memory, and how after we have experienced something, all we have left is the memory of the experience. Larry is interested in the power of memories, the ones that have shaped his life, and how the experience can vary from one person to another, including how memories can be heightened or diluted. Larry looks back nostalgically on the cover of the first album he bought and the TV programmes he watched as a child, using these memories as a starting point.

Agnieszka Maksymiuk's piece for stART.

Artist: Agnieszka Maksymiuk
Institute: Birmingham City University
Description: Agnieszka has always been inspired by the beauty of nature, and tried to capture the movement of water and expression of colours. In this image the navy blue ink was poured into the clear water and as a result changed into irregular, smooth shapes.

Monkey Ring by Josephine Tournebize

Monkey Ring by Josephine Tournebize

Artist: Josephine Tournebize
Institute: Birmingham City University
Description: Josephine’s “Monkey Ring” is cast in Bronze, and was one of her first attempts with the lost wax technique. The top of the ring should represent a monkey or human like face without too many details, so the viewer can decide for themselves which one it is. On the right are bananas and on the other sides are some very detailed leaves. It is partially inspired by highly detailed Indian jewellery.

Jenga Francis by Luc Waring.

Artist: Luc Waring
Institute: University of Brighton
Description: The girls represent multi-national corporations playing with the world economy, which is represented by the different currencies on the Jenga blocks. The girls are dressed in seductive expensive clothes, illustrating the seduction of advertisement and image of ‘high-life’ which goes with it. The Jenga tower itself represents the unstable world economy.

Iona Hutley's piece for stART.

Artist: Iona Hutley
Institute: University of Brighton
Description: Iona was interested in the notion of time and space, but the theme of the work is somewhat religious based. Most of her ideas come from things that spring out from newspapers, books, headlines or just general day to day events.
